Literature abounds with monsters - from the dragons that plague medieval towns to the vampires that rise from nineteenth-century graves to the aliens, cyborgs, and zombies that serve as the basis of our contemporary nightmares. The prevalence of these creatures prompts literary critics to ask why they haunt us. What can we learn from a closer examination of these fictional monsters?

     The failures of traditional periodization are nowhere more evident than when Western scholars approach non-Western cultures, religions, and/or political formations under the rubric of “middleness.” Even as projects such as the “Global Middle Ages” seek to broaden the geographic scope of medieval studies, which has for too long ignored the cultural production of non-European, non-Western societies, such endeavors import assumptions about modernization and enlightenment that may obscure as much as they reveal about the peoples and places they study.

Confluences and Conduits

In the twelfth century, Hugh of Saint Victor compared the temporal world to “flood water sweeping past,” and Bernard of Cluny imagined it to be unfixed and unstable like “streams of water.” Linking apocalyptic imaginings and temporal anxieties with the flux of liquid landscapes was not uncommon in the Middle Ages. But medieval waterways also gave life. This panel seeks to explore the generative nature of rivers, channels, and oceans at the edge of human experience, exploring the dynamism of fluid liminality.
